Cast aside

so perfectly set

in your back pocket

always in search of

something better

brighter, shinier

 

I jumped out

through tangled threads

when I detected

the dimmest

inflection

of ever so slight

 self serving

ambition

stirring

your pompous

pot of muck

 

flourishing, it

grew and

grew

no longer hiding behind

tall fences

built with

tightly packed pickets

yet,

there are holes in the fences

where the color of

you

seeps through

revealing

you have no back pocket

at all
